I was pretty excited to hear that Michael Bublé would be coming back to Singapore for a concert in January 2015 but when I saw the final announcement, I wasn’t excited anymore.
Michael Bublé is performing 2 nights at the Marina Bay Sands Grand Ballroom on 16 and 17 January 2015 and tickets are priced at $688 (VIP includes drink vouchers and merchandise), $488, $388 and $288. There are some (last resort) restricted view tickets going at $188. The prices are in Singapore dollars and does not include the $4 booking fee.
I like Michael Bublé but $288 to sit at the back is just priced out of my league. It’s crazy. I went to google other Michael Bublé dates and I saw that Bangkok (24 January 2015) was priced at THB 2,000 – 6,5000 (approx SGD 80 ~ 260) and Kuala Lumpur (27 January 2015) is priced at MYR 198 – 998 (approx SGD 75 ~ 378). I didn’t bother to check Jakarta and Manila but I’m pretty sure it won’t be as expensive as the Singapore tickets.
All ticket prices for shows in all countries are stated without fees.
With a favourable exchange rate against the Malaysian Ringgit, I might as well spend $688 to go on a 3 day 2 night trip to Kuala Lumpur and include a mid-priced ticket to the Michael Bublé concert. It definitely is do-able.
And by the way, beatboxing group Naturally 7 are special guests for all Michael Bublé dates. Check them out:
